Marathon Swimming (Taking place in open water environments such as the sea, rivers and lakes, but with a premium on safety, the men's and women's 10km open water swimming event is known as the marathon swimming event. This event is a relative newcomer to the Olympic program, making its debut as an official Olympic event at the Beijing 2008 Games. Usually staged on a circular course, the swimmers receive water at regular intervals as their endurance is tested to the maximum for up to two hours. Naturally, records are important, but as the races are often determined by weather and the open water conditions, planning a strategy is of vital importance. The swimmers who are able to use the waves, tides and currents to their best advantage are often those who post the best results. Being in tip-top physical condition is a given, but there also many swimmers with a wealth of experience in skillfully responding to the prevailing conditions and planning the optimal strategies)
"Feeding" during the marathon. Marathon swimmers spend about two hours in the water. As such, staying well hydrated is one of the most important factors of racing, especially in humid conditions. In order to take water in the most efficient way possible, coaches head to the water’s edge and hand their athlete a water bottle attached to a large stick with their nation’s flag on it...........
Marathon swimming is unique in that competitors must navigate around natural factors, as well as their rivals. Fish could be seen jumping over the heads of swimmers as they cut through the water at the Odaiba Marine Park, with one hitting a bronze medalist Kareena Lee’s chest. "It jumped up and hit me (on the chest). I didn't know what it was at first and I was like 'woah'," Australian Lee said of the fish.........

The Panthessaliko Stadium is a stadium located at Volos, Greece. The stadium was the site of football (soccer) matches during the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Queen Elizabeth and "James Bond" open the 2012 London Olympics (Daniel Craig reprisedchis role as British secret agent James Bond as he accompanies Her Majesty The Queen to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The Bond actor, 44, and Her Majesty filmed a hilarious scene for the opening ceremony, featuring 007 accompanying the royal Bond girl to a helicopter. The memorable scene ended with stunt performers, doubling for Bond and the Queen, jumping out of the helicopter and parachuting into the stadium)
Daniel Craig has admitted he was grumpy during filming with the Queen as it was his day off. But Craig has confessed that while his royal companion was game for a laugh during the skit, he was less so. He is quoted by The Mirror as saying: 'It wasn’t supposed to be funny. It was supposed to be serious. 'She was fun, incredibly game. We had a short space of time and I was a bit grumpy as it was my day off and suddenly I am at the Palace with the Queen at her private chamber.' 'And she improvises a little bit. She was supposed to be sitting at the desk and she asked if she could write, so she pretended to write.'
Princes William, Harry “Kept in the Dark” About Queen Elizabeth’s Olympic James Bond Stunt. No one was more surprised to see Queen Elizabeth II parachute down into the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games than her own grandsons. Prince William and Prince Harry revealed in a new interview with BBC Friday that they had no clue their grandmother was participating in the July 27 sketch. “Both of us were slightly surprised with our grandmother’s secret hobby of parachuting,” Harry joked. The 86-year-old queen showed off her comedic side in a pre-taped video with Daniel Craig, 44, as James Bond. In the hilarious clip, the duo left Buckingham, boarded a helicopter and — switching to live cameras — parachuted into the Olympic Stadium. (Both The Queen and Craig used stunt doubles, of course.) We were kept completely in the dark about it, that’s how big the secret was,” William, 30, explained. “Harry got a sniff of a rumor on the night and the rumor mill was going into overdrive.” “But, in fact, she did such a good performance that she’s been asked to star in the next Bond film,” he joked. “I’m thrilled for her.”
Ronnie Baker - A native of Louisville, Kentucky, qualified for the Tokyo Olympics by running, at the time, a personal best of 9.85 in the 100m, while finishing 2nd at the 2020 US Olympic Trials. Baker's Tokyo Olympic semifinal personal best time of 9.83 ties him for the 9th fastest time in Olympic 100m history and qualifies him as the third-fastest American in Olympic 100m history.
Surfing (is one of five additional sports proposed by the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee to bring more youthful and vibrant events and culture into the Olympic program. In 2016, its inclusion was approved by the International Olympic Committee. The competition will take place in the ocean, where the condition of the waves, the direction and strength of the wind, and the ebb and flow of the tide will all be factors. No two waves are alike, making surfing a competition where athletes compete against each other while balancing the changing conditions of nature)
